Jesus Christ has called a woman to be His own forever!
Her name is Sister Miriam Kibsah of the Good Shepherd. Kibsah means little she-lamb. She is a lucky girl!
On December 8th, Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, Sister Miriam Kibsah, a Sister of our community, will make her Solemn Profession. The Most Rev. Bishop Arthur J. Serratelli, Bishop Emeritus of Paterson, will preside. The celebration will start at 10am. Everyone is invited for this beautiful celebration.
In the context of Carmelite life, Solemn Profession marks the end of initial formation and the point of total commitment of the religious to God. She is now ready to embark definitively on the wonderful mission of saving souls!
The Lord’s reassuring words addressed to the apostle Paul are addressed to our dear Sister today: “My grace is enough for you; my power is at its best in weakness.”
And the recommendation of our Holy Mother Teresa is so appropriate, “We are the beginners. Let us strive to begin always!’
The celebration will be held at the Carmelite Monastery, 189 Madison Avenue, Morristown, New Jersey.
Sister Miriam Kibsah originally comes from the parish of Saint Peter's Church
in Belleville NJ. The pastor Father Ivan Sciberras was instrumental in leading her first crucial steps towards Carmel.
